    The Daily Mail link is to a new book about former Labour prime minister Tony Blair. Similar to the Democratic party, Labour in Britain is, and has been, dedicated to the proposition that there is only good in multiculturalism, no matter where the immigrants come from and how many, and if you have to obtain it by lying and cheating, that’s all justified.

    The Labour government relaxed a rule that had controlled bogus marriages between Indians and Pakistanis in Britain to those in their home countries who wished to emigrate to Britain and bring their families. In spite of the critics who said this would explode the number of those marriages, the government passed the new rule. Predictably, as always happens, the critics were right and the numbers increased by a factor of 20. The article goes on and on with similar examples.
